    Default discojoe's useful tips and advice

    Disclaimer: The "maxims" are my own personal observations. If any of them are plagiarized it is accidental coincidence.


    Leave your computer running 24/7, and set your hard drive to never stop spinning. Heat stress from thermal expansion is one of the leading causes of hardware failure in computers, and it is better for them to be warm continuously (i.e. they will last longer) than to be on-off-on-off etc. The exception to this rule is monitors, which last longer if they are turned off when not in use.


    Fight dirty. Chivalry is a scheme promoted by cutthroats to improve their odds of winning. If someone formidable attacks you, blind them, cut them, injure them. Fighting has always been a dirty business, and survival should be valued above honor.


    The best antivirus at the moment is Panda Cloud. It is install-and-forget and requires no configuration other than making an account in order to access the virus signature cloud. Uninstall whatever garbage program you are currently using and replace it with Panda Cloud.


    Unless it is related to work, agree with everything your boss says. If it is work related, only disagree politely and in private.


    Bad breath does not go away unless you scrape your tongue every morning to remove plaque.


    Talking about something is not the same as doing it. This seems absurdly obvious, but many people do not seem to understand it.


    Your opponent is not your friend. Friends are people we lift up, opponents are people we crush. Love your friend and hate your opponent. Only once he has been defeated can an opponent be lifted to his feet in friendship.


    The best website for downloading useful programs is Filehippo.


    2^0 = 1
    2^1 = 1x2
    2^2 = 1x2x2


    Do not spend money without asking yourself if there is some other expense that takes priority. It is easy to forget about bills when two hundred dollars rest in your wallet.


    Math is always simple. When you look at math that seems complex and intimidating, it is exactly like looking at a foreign language that you have not yet learned to read. Once the language is learned, it becomes easy.


    When assembling Magic decks, do not add cards merely because they "seem cool." Instead, examine as many cards as you can from the sets you will be using and find cards that work well together. Those cards will form your game strategy, and other cards should only be added in such as way that minimizes interference with the interaction of your core deck cards.


    Always assume your opponent could be better than you.


    Once you have learned from them, stop thinking about past mistakes. You are just wasting your time.


    When in cold weather, the most important part of the body to keep warm is the chest, followed by the neck, followed by the head.


    It is better to aim for mostly correct than always correct. The latter goal will lead to over-analysis and anxiety. Pick the most reasonable option and stick with it.

    okay that said, I like the "talking about something is not the same thing as doing it" line. I often need to hear that. And you're right, it seems obvious but most people are talkers rather than doers.

    I've heared a similar expression once, that I like.

    It's easyer to fight for your principles then to follow them.

    You often see politicians talk about for example, environment and racism, and in the mean time they will not abandon their petrol car, and keep living in a purely white neighbourhood.

    Yes.

    Yeah, it frustrates me when people talk about needing to do something but just sit there. If I need to do something, I just get up and do it, though some people would say that I am overly cautious before finally deciding to do something.

    Not specifically, except for the one that mentions it by name. But I guess you could apply any of them to Magic.

    Filehippo is just for legal stuff. If you want cracks, the best two sites are:

    GameCopyWorld - Mirrors - No-CD, No-DVD Patches, Game Fixes, Trainers & Cheats
    GameBurnWorld- Cheats, Game Fixes, No-DVD Patches, Trainers, Covers, No-CD Files

    Hand Soap works great as improvised deodorant. (for those "Oh shit, I forgot to pack something" moments)

    One of the most important and most commonly overlooked elements for nutrition is serving/portion size. Furthermore, plate/bowl/cup size directly influences how much one serves oneself.

    Provided you're in a country where such a right exists, always exercise your right to an attorney. Always.

    In conversation, a direct answer is almost always more convincing than a thorough one.

    When in doubt, don't be; go with what you know and what your instincts are.

    Eating and sleeping are interchangeable. (And, in a pinch, amphetamines.)

    Always look to see if there's toilet paper before sitting down.

    Never lend someone something that you wouldn't be willing to just give them. (Unless it's an investment... but don't do that with friends/family and make sure you're being legally smart about it. Clearly defined rules for who's responsible for what.)

    If a guy tells you he's an asshole, believe him.

    Drinks lots of water.

    Save 10% of your income.

    Never marry or have a kid in hopes that your relationship will improve as a result.

    Eat vegetables every day.

    Life is what you make it.

    You are solely responsible for your state of being. No one made you happy or sad or angry. You allowed yourself to be happy or sad or angry.

    Pain is something to be subordinated to your will.

    Mistakes are learning opportunities. It's okay to make a mistake, as long as you learn from it.

    Procrastination is simply indecision. Be decisive. Get er done.

    Tasks undone are far more fatiguing than work completed.

    Never buy a pet that sheds.

    Teach a man to fish, I say.

    This is VERY not PC, but, I think it has some real truth to it.

    It reminds me a bit of democratic peace theory, and classical liberalism vs realism. The best examples of developing democracies come after those two countries had the shit beaten out of them, including economic destruction: Japan and Germany.


    I wonder if there is an alternative, but I wouldn't be surprised if their wasn't. The thing is, even if you want an alternative, it would only seem appealing to the people who aren't interested in destroying you, anyway. Tricky.



    Other things I like in a standout-sense:

    Do not spend money without asking yourself if there is some other expense that takes priority. It is easy to forget about bills when two hundred dollars rest in your wallet.

    Always assume your opponent could be better than you.

    It is better to aim for mostly correct than always correct. The latter goal will lead to over-analysis and anxiety. Pick the most reasonable option and stick with it.

    No it's not, sleeping affects you're memory and ability to actually heal yourself and restore yourself.
    You can't just "eat more" and expect your body to do those things it can only do when you're not conscious.
    I think you'd LIKE for them to be interchangeable, but, that's a bit too Si-porl for reality

    I'm more talking about short term solutions. Obviously you need to make up sleep debt or you'll get sick.

    bullshit. you can't stay up for days by eating, and it's hard to sleep when you're really hungry. and amphetamines don't really make me not hungry, just so disgusted by the idea of eating that i therefore avoid it even though my stomach hurts so badly i want to crawl up and die. and you can sleep on them if you're tired enough, depending on the dose and type. but really you're better off with plain old caffeine if you don't want to sleep. using amphetamines to stay up is just dumb. i mean everyone does it once and a while but why raise your tolerance over something trivial when you don't have to?


    and i'm not in the mood to read the rest of the list…

    Read my response to the previous post on this subject.

    Similarly to the last post of mine you responded to, that part of my post was a joke.

    It's all foreign to me. I just know who is standing in my way and try to figure out what it will take to solve the problem.

    God, cut the crap already. These barely-in-context, weak little insertions of proclaimed personal attitudes that reaffirm your "type" at opportune moments have GOT to stop.

    Do we really have to do this shit again? ;_;

    When reading new information that contains unfamiliar terms, do not try to concentrate too hard. Intense concentration shuts off the ability to accept new input and is only for when we already understand the variables that are in play. With new information, focus only so hard as to mentally paraphrase the new data so as to store it away in memory (which simple passive reading cannot efficiently achieve), while maintaining a relaxed, at-ease mental state.

    Leave your computer running 24/7, and set your hard drive to never stop spinning. Heat stress from thermal expansion is one of the leading causes of hardware failure in computers, and it is better for them to be warm continuously (i.e. they will last longer) than to be on-off-on-off etc. The exception to this rule is monitors, which last longer if they are turned off when not in use.


    Fight dirty. Chivalry is a scheme promoted by cutthroats to improve their odds of winning. If someone formidable attacks you, blind them, cut them, injure them. Fighting has always been a dirty business, and survival should be valued above honor.


    The best antivirus at the moment is Panda Cloud. It is install-and-forget and requires no configuration other than making an account in order to access the virus signature cloud. Uninstall whatever garbage program you are currently using and replace it with Panda Cloud.


    Unless it is related to work, agree with everything your boss says. If it is work related, only disagree politely and in private.


    Bad breath does not go away unless you scrape your tongue every morning to remove plaque.


    Talking about something is not the same as doing it. This seems absurdly obvious, but many people do not seem to understand it.


    Your opponent is not your friend. Friends are people we lift up, opponents are people we crush. Love your friend and hate your opponent. Only once he has been defeated can an opponent be lifted to his feet in friendship.


    The best website for downloading useful programs is Filehippo.


    2^0 = 1
    2^1 = 1x2
    2^2 = 1x2x2


    Do not spend money without asking yourself if there is some other expense that takes priority. It is easy to forget about bills when two hundred dollars rest in your wallet.


    Math is always simple. When you look at math that seems complex and intimidating, it is exactly like looking at a foreign language that you have not yet learned to read. Once the language is learned, it becomes easy.


    When assembling Magic decks, do not add cards merely because they "seem cool." Instead, examine as many cards as you can from the sets you will be using and find cards that work well together. Those cards will form your game strategy, and other cards should only be added in such as way that minimizes interference with the interaction of your core deck cards.


    Always assume your opponent could be better than you.


    Once you have learned from them, stop thinking about past mistakes. You are just wasting your time.


    When in cold weather, the most important part of the body to keep warm is the chest, followed by the neck, followed by the head.


    It is better to aim for mostly correct than always correct. The latter goal will lead to over-analysis and anxiety. Pick the most reasonable option and stick with it.
    That's some pretty good advice. I either apply it or am going to apply it now I've read it.

    Yes! Haha, I know this feeling exactly.

    I think the US should enact an additional constitutional law "Joy is forbidden from speaking about anything health-related".

    That's way too little. Perhaps OK if your income is quite low and/or you're really young.

    When I was a student, I used to say loudly to my classmates -just before a test: "If someone asks you a question related to the test, just before a test, just smash his head!"
